PostSubject: I've Made a Couple of Changes   20/08/17, 11:14 am


Because our Yuku profiles are about to disappear I've been having a bit of a play on here.

I've changed the portal page to look similar to the Yuku profile and will treat that as I would have of that profile.

I personally always also like the What I've Been Up To box on those profiles and I often used to follow people's posts via their links in that box, so I have decided to use my Twitter account to do similar.  See Twitter box in the sidebar.

From now on I will post on Twitter any and all activity of mine on any and all boards and blogs I visit, so that others can follow those links just as they would on our Yuku profiles.

I know few people (ex-Yukuers) bother with Twitter, and when they do if they follow me I often don't follow back because I don't recognise them as a friend, knowing only their Yuku usernames and not their real names.

So if you also decide to use Twitter as a way to get visitors to your boards or blogs, then do follow me and also let me know that I do "know you" by either sending me an @ tweet on Twitter or by posting your Twitter name in here and I will follow you and any interesting links (activity) you might post.

I'm easy to spot on Twitter because I use the same username as i did on Yuku and I also have a link to this board on my information area.

I do like how you've used the portal page as a profile page Sandy Smile might have to copy you with that lol.

Well,  I always wished our Yuku profiles had allowed us access to the html on that new style so that one could link it easily with our message boards by adding link to the top menu so we could make them into a sort of portal page.

At the moment I have just put anything on it for a fun test, but I'm sure I will find things to add and change to make it more interesting.

I just wish I could think of a way we could all link up as people as we could with our frinds feeds and WIBUT box rather than just being linked with our boards via affilates.  Baring in mind that so many people don't have affiliates but rather sister sites where you have to post regularly or your ad gets removed and so does your membership.

I personally think Twitter is a great way for all to link up.  But so few people take advantage of that system, prefering Facebook.

I have found Facebook worse than useless as a means to get people to visit us or our boards.

I opened that Zan's Zone Facebook page, but all you get is people clicking to visit the post and then they go back to Facebook to give it a like or a comment.  That FB page just isn't worth bothering with.

Plus Facebook only feed you posts of friends that they feel like feeding.  They don't feed posts of all of our friends.

I do however follow links from Twitter when people post them.  There are a couple of ex-Yukuers that actually do post their links on Twitter which I always click to read.

As you can see though, I have now started posting links to posts on boards that I visit and comment on just as those that would have shown up on my Yuku feed.

I leave my Twitter page open in a pinned page and now everytime I make a post anywhere I also send it to Twitter if that post is interesting.

I like to follow posts and not have to go around every single board I am a member of to just post a hello post.  So I wish others would think of doing the same with Twitter.

At the moment it's a case of having to remember to click to add links that I make on other boards, but it wont take long for it to become a habit.

I'm trying to add things on twitter that would have automatically been showing on our friends list, such as ....

Buzzing
Becoming friends with someone (on Twitter)
Joining a community
New Post (or interesting post on someone else's board)

and so on.

I'm also trying to figure out a way that it can be done more easily and easy to remember.  I might put a link in my signature on all boards I go to so with one click I can add something to twitter.

On this board it's easy because the link to twitter is added at the bottom of each post I make plus I have added a tweet button at the top of each post next to "share".

Now you have added the tweet button to your profile contact fields as well, I've removed the button link from my signature on your board as it wont be needed.

Such an easy way to tweet a post.
